Aluminium Oxide Processing
MHM has the global rights to a process that converts non metallic product (NMP) into AL80. This is one of the commodities recovered from salt cake recycling. AL80 is produced when aluminium oxide recovered from Alreco’s salt cake operations is value added using an additional proprietary process.
MHM has an option to acquire the rights to a technology under development for the conversion of the aluminium oxide residue from the salt cake recycling into a high-grade alumina substitute product.
A contract has been signed for the supply of Alreco's AL80 product. AL80 is produced from aluminium oxide, one of the commodities recovered from salt cake recycling. The compound is produced when aluminium oxide recovered from Alreco's salt cake operations is value added using an additional proprietary process. Finding valuable applications for aluminium oxide has been a major hurdle with the industry trying unsuccessfully for a number of years to source a high value, high volume application. Following initial shipments to China follow-up orders have not been received in line with the contract.
MHM is working closely with the buyers and with a number of other potential customers both locally and overseas to place the AL80 currently being produced. Sales have been made to Australian users and there are many other buyers who have been given samples and this process is continuing. MHM remains confident that it will sell all AL80 product.
MHM has an option to acquire the rights to a technology under development to recycle Spent Pot Lining (SPL), a waste product from the primary aluminium industry.
